Pyongyang, November 5 (KCNA) — Yun Song Sik, permanent member of the consultative council of former South Korean politicians in the north for the promotion of peaceful reunification, in an article contributed to Rodong Sinmun yesterday demanded the U.S. pay for all their brutal massacres of South Korean people committed from the onset of the Korean War up to this date.
Recalling that since the very day of their occupation of South Korea the U.S. has massacred patriotic people, he said: These massacres were, in essence, prompted by a criminal attempt to repress and kill all patriotic forces who stood against their policy of colonial enslavement in South Korea and of war of aggression against the north, save the shaking colonial rule from its crisis and, furthermore, swallow up the North Korea.
It is not the first time that the issue of probing the truth about massacres committed by the U.S. in South Korea was raised but it posed itself as a serious problem after the April 19 Popular Uprising in the early 1960s. However, it could not build up an opinion of the whole public due to harsh repression by the U.S. and the South Korean authorities.
Pointing to the disclosure of the undeniable truth about GIs’ killings during the Korean War recently made by AP, he dismissed the attempt of the U.S. and the South Korean authorities to cover up their crimes as an unpardonable criminal act to calm down the daily growing anti-U.S. feelings of the South Korean people.
We cannot live under the same sky with the U.S., who regard the Korean nation as an object of aggression, war and plunder, and with the South Korean authorities who faithfully serve the U.S. aggression troops, killers of our compatriots.
He expressed the expectation that the South Korean people would continue to hold the U.S. accountable for the massacres committed in South Korea till now and wage a more vigorous struggle for independence against the U.S. and for democracy against the puppets till the killer, the U.S., admits and apologizes for its crimes and quits South Korea.
